Are you talking about this one:


He did sing with Phil, but it was not that popular with the Phans...

Hi SD77,

As well as the short BBC stuff the 10th, 11th, 13th, and 16th November have been uploaded. That's why I didn't post any particular link. If you check the RA collection they are all there in 'most recent'. I hope whoever is putting these up here does the remaining two, they've all been a bit out of my reach.

Also a good place to look:

http://www.ryanadamsarchive.com. In the torrents section, they also have videos and older stuff, even dating as far back as the Patty Duke Syndrome (1st band I saw Ryan in) and a fair collection of Whiskeytown stuff. As you're probably well aware, Phil rehearsed several Ryan songs for the upcoming tour.

Here's a relatively old post of mine on Mr. Adams:

There's a reason Phil has said he reminds him more of Jerry than any other artist he's met and that among those who have sung his praise are Neil Young and Elton John. He's been as wildly erratic as he has been prolific, but he just turned 32 and has got an outstanding band that, due to marketing reasons, they bill as Ryan Adams and the Cardinals as opposed to just The Cardinals (as Ryan wanted). Check out some of his recent shows posted on the archive.

Phil Lesh speaks about Ryan Adams

Via AnsweringBell.com:

I love playing with Ryan because he’s fearless; because he doesn’t have to do anything the same way twice; because every idea he throws out in a jam is a little gem that cries out “polish me”; because he has about nine hundred voices that he can use like a Bene Gesserit; because of his huge heart and enormous talent. I like it that we deconstruct the songs so that verses are transposed, or the bridge comes in early, or the jam leads back to a verse instead of a chorus. I like it that we have to be on our tippy-tippy toes to make the acute left turns and abrupt changes that Ryan likes to spring on us. I like to spring those kind of changes too- what do you think I’m doing when I talk into my mike and you can’t hear me? I love playing with Ryan because he takes me back to when the Grateful Dead were young, fearless, crazy and didn’t give a shit about what other people thought we should do. If what you desire is the perfect rendition, there are many excellent bands that perform Grateful Dead songs- but I have never been about perfection and never will be. I do promise that I will always do my best to follow my weird. I hope you will join me, but I do understand if your path takes you elsewhere. I will also say with no hesitation that Jerry would have loved Ryan and his fearless interpretations of his songs. It’s funny, but I feel Jerry close to me whenever I am around Ryan. — Phil Lesh (January 2006)[in response to those kind Phil fans that were bashing Ryan on the message boards]

Found this link to Phil speaking on that topic as well as soundboards at archive and the crap bobby gets re the same. Of course, Phil could never have more insight than anyone posting here...
